The Israelites covered one set of mountains and the Philistines stood ready on the other side. David chose five stones and faced Goliath in this valley. He put on Saul's armor and then took it off before entering the battle because it didn't fit just right. He probably could have made it work. Instead, he set down what was made for another and picked up (and used) what he already knew. He had been practicing for years; daily life was his preparation. I bet he was nervous - I would have been. But I bet there was a quiet confidence there, too, because he was ready before the battle began.

Daily, ordinary life is our practice and we probably won't see it until we're on the other side of whatever God is preparing us for. Armor might look good and someone else's story or gifting might look nice, but they won't fit just right. Live into your story. It was given to you on purpose.
